The final tally is in, and the third annual Indians/Reds Celebrity Golf Classic raised $21,586.40, an increase of about $7,000 over last year, according to tournament officials.

The money benefits the H.O.P.E. Team nonprofit organization, which serves the patients and families of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), a national network of fully accredited cancer hospitals, including one in Phoenix.

The Feb. 21 tournament was the third played by the Indians and Reds, spring training neighbors at Goodyear Ballpark. Festivities included longest drive and closest to the pin awards, along with prizes for the groups with the all-around lowest scores. A team featuring Indians lefty Scott Barnes won the overall top prize, while Tribe reliever Bryan Shaw won — and donated back to charity — the 50/50 poker hand.
